A fairly new organization is helping men and women who have been released from prison get a fresh start.

The Lexington Academy of Barbering was founded by Anthony Hayden in May, and since its launch, hundreds of people have been helped.

The group began as a way to get former inmates through barber school, and get them on track to a better life.

Since the organization is a non-profit and pays for college, they need donations to stay afloat.
